Curriculum - StEP

 

This program will extend the above average students through creative skill thinking activities. These activities involve spontaneous answering of problems, researching to answer questions, both closed and open, and using the STEM approach to inquiry.

It teaches the students the need to work collaboratively to solve many problems, as well as strategies to solve problem when working independently.

StEP is also used as a platform for students to prepare and organise for the OptiMind challenge day where our school competes against other school in the town.  OptiMinds works on setting a problem which the students must solve. The problem is usually complex and multi-layered and involves students using their English skills to also create a script for their presentation.
